Quilt for Melissa's Baby Girl

Tuesday, July 21, 2009


I've been plotting this quilt ever since I found at that Melissa was pregnant. I picked out the fabric for this before she found out that she was having a girl (wishful thinking on my part!). I wanted to use this fabric because it's got a few different scissor patterns in it and Melissa is quite the accomplished seamstress and quilter. This baby will have sewing in her blood, so why not have it in her new quilt, too?





I made this quilt last year for another friend's baby. You can see the details of the construction in that post, but this quilt uses half of a crib size quilt batting, 10 charm squares and about 2 yards of fabric for the sashing, binding and backing. The patterned fabric is Moda's Wonderland and the solid is a Kona Cotton.





Melissa promises to send some action shots once her little girl arrives sometime this fall!

  10. Oh so cute! Love it! I really love this pattern and I have some fabric ready to go that I purchased last time you made one of these. It really is on my next up list. Funny how I have a "to-do list" a "to-make list" and an "up-next list." Maybe I should stop making lists and start quilting.
